Using find / -name - Linux / Unix Administration

How can I do a find / -name sometext That does not print each path that has cannot read dir /somepath/somepath : Permission denied I don't see anything in the man pages that lists any flags that will suppress the Permission denied items. I also tried to use grep with a -v, but that did not work. Thanks...

    How can I do a find / -name sometext
    That does not print each path that has
    cannot read dir /somepath/somepath : Permission denied

    I don't see anything in the man pages that lists any flags that will
    suppress the Permission denied items. I also tried to use grep with a -v,
    but that did not work.
